Skip to comments.NY Governor's ex-wife Kerry Kennedy 'making $40 MILLION by advocating for rainforests'

Activist Kerry Kennedy apparently has more than just a humanitarian interest in the outcome of the trial over the environmental damages caused to Ecuadorian rain forests.
It was revealed today that Ms Kennedy, who is the ex-wife of Governor Andrew Cuomo and former president John F. Kennedy's niece, has a financial stake in the contentious legal battle.
Local courts recently ordered Chevron to pay $18billion in damages-which the company is now appealing- and if the decision is upheld, $40million of that money could go straight to Ms Kennedy.
Just a few months after penning the article, she was paid $50,000 by the lead attorney in the case against Chevron, Steven Donziger.
'Kerry Kennedy, daughter of RFK and human rights lawyer, is coming to Ecuador... This could give us a real boost... Will cost money, but not much,' an internal email to the legal team read in October 2009 just before The Huffington Post article.
The budget of the legal team also says that she was due to receive $10,000 per month in 2010 and $40,000 to cover additional expenses.
She is also allotted a 0.25 per cent stake in the financial outcome of the court case. That means that if the recent demand that the company pay $18billion is upheld, Ms Kennedy will be walking away with $40million. In addition to using her Kennedy name, the legal team was clear that they hoped that her close ties to New York politics would help their fight against Chevron.
Though their divorce was notoriously acrimonious- it was rumored that Mr Cuomo walked in on Ms Kennedy mid-tryst with a married family friend- she surely could have some influence in getting state government officials to call her back.

Just another Kennedy wh???.
Nice teeth. Is her nick-name “whinny”?
Carrying on the long Kennedy family tradition of philandering.
More Al Gore style “Wealth Redistribution To The Wealthy” based on leftist Environvental-Gobbledygook.
The NEW Robber Barrons are liberal activists who use their causes and/or influence as a vehicle to get rich. Examples are these proposed carbon exchanges, “Community” oriented banks, Green technology companies, Lobbying firms, or organizations that engage in blatant shakedowns based on racial or other Leftist grievances. Unlike the OLD “Robber Barrons”, these people actually produce nothing of value (lasting or otherwise).
They sure know how to pull a con.
A whore by any other name.....
The Kennedy family is corrupt to the core.
It started with Joe Sr and his rum-running, stock-fixing, and mafia friends. His spawn have learned there is even more money in green-energy and finance.
How dareth thou smear one of thy daughters of royal American family bloodline?
Whenever there’s a call for social justice and a liberal cause that costs you money...rest assumed some liberal hypocrite is making a profit from it.
Another sleazy Kennedy skank
Why do all the Kennedy women look like they just smelled a fart?
In certain non-PC, outside NYC, circles, that would make Cuomo a cabron, that is to say, a cuckold. As for Kerry, not bad, not bad at all. Yes I would.
